Subject: From Port to Port
Somewhat interesting overview of The West Coast Ports. What the film REALLY means of course is the AMERICAN West Coast ports, so well have no talk about Vancouver, thank you very much! The short breezes from one port to another, and the up-to-date shipping facilities for that time period each of them made. The film also curiously reminds us, apropopos of nothing, that San Fransisco has trolley cars. Thanks for sharing.

Fairly early Coronet film chronicaling the major cities of the West Coast. Excellent footage of the cities in the late 1940s, giving a glimpse how the cities were. Interesting to see places like Seattle and Portland back when the major focus was timber and agriculture. Also a decent broadly theoretical outline on how and why cities develop and grow.
